Bug Description

I used landscape to upgrade landscape-client in 4 machines that were using landscape-client with APT instead of smart.

Out of those 4, 3 had problems in that all landscape client processes except the package-changer died:

root@li36-158:~# ps fxaw|grep landscape
14506 ? Ss 0:12 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/landscape-package-changer --quiet

The activity is stuck in the "In progress" state on the server.

The upgrade was from landscape-client r448 to r449.

Attached are the logs (dates and times in UTC) that include the upgrade. Details of the activity:
Created at: Today 12:37 UTC
Delivered at: Today 12:39

It's a new dependency, we need python-twisted-names:
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: No module named names

This was only seen when trying to start landscape-client interactively, without the initscript.
